Dear Mr. Fang Zhang,

I am writing to you today to notify that I would like to extend my gratitude for everything you’ve done through a donation of 10 dollars per month. I would like to help you provide humanitarian aid and means of sustenance to the kin of those who are subjugated to oppression by their political system; I’m referring to the program sponsored by Humanitarian China, by the way. Anyways, I just wanted to chip in with $120, a portion of the stipend I received from my summer research internship.

As always, best wishes,

David Jiang

Dear Tiananmen mother:

My name is D. I am a seventeen-year-old high school student, born in the United States. I first heard of you from my father and Mr. Fang Zheng. I was propelled into action upon hearing that you lost a son who was close to my age in the June 4th incident. I am aware that you and other parents were unfortunate enough to lose your sons and daughters in the crackdown on June 4th, 1989. Although I may never completely comprehend the sense of loss you’ve felt, I offer my deepest condolences. However, in my opinion, your children have not perished without a cause; in fact, their lives were relinquished in pursuit of what I deem the noblest of causes. They all pursued democratic liberty in China through nonviolent means. Although they are gone, their ideals and goals are not; in fact, the feats they strove to accomplish have made them heroes, in my mind at least.

I write to you today with this message, but also a donation. After hearing of this situation, I’ve collected a bit of money that I can only hope that you’ll be able to put to good use. I wish you only the best of luck in your endeavors.
